SCHUNK and READY Robotics Announce Partnership to Develop Automation Explorer Simulation Tool Using NVIDIA Omniverse Platform

SCHUNK is proud to announce a partnership with READY Robotics to develop the Automation Explorer simulation tool. As automation technology advances, simulation technology must progress further to support specification, deployment, and re-deployment of automated systems. Automation Explorer is a state-of-the-art technology where users will virtually experience and interact with SCHUNK automation technology in a highly immersive and detailed, physics-based simulation tool.

NVIDIA Isaac Sim™, built on NVIDIA Omniverse™, is a simulation platform used to develop, test, and deploy AI-based robotics applications. Its robust physics engine enables detailed, realistic simulations that closely emulate real-world conditions. READY Robotics is the developer of ForgeOS, the industrial OS for robots and automation, and a pioneer in cutting-edge automation solutions that overcome the obstacles faced by manufacturers. Automation Explorer combines NVIDIA Isaac Sim™, READY Robotics’ ForgeOS, and SCHUNK’s automation technologies.  

Automation Explorer will take the term “digital twin” to the next level. Photo-realistic imaging of manufacturing environments, advanced robot control software, and world-class automation technology come together in one unique experience.  

Physics-based technical product data from automation technology, like grippers, will drive the simulation. This allows true virtual commissioning of real-world automation projects. Simulating process automation with physics-based calculations means more accurate visualization and optimization before a robot ever reaches a production floor. Kel Guerin, Co-Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at READY Robotics says, “By connecting ForgeOS and NVIDIA Isaac Sim™, customers will be able to control any robotic hardware and SCHUNK peripherals in simulation and the real world, in exactly the same way.” 

Automation Explorer will bring confidence to both new and experienced users of automation that their process is being optimized to its full potential. Whether investigating automation possibilities for the first time, or re-deploying automation equipment for a new task, Automation Explorer brings major opportunity for understanding automation process potential while also digitalizing and simplifying deployment tasks," said Milton Guerry, President of SCHUNK USA.
